Kingdom was criticized for the outfit ideas for the group’s upcoming album.

On March 7, Kingdom released the first concept photo for their upcoming mini-album, History Of Kingdom: Part VIMujin.

In the picture, the Kingdom members are seen attire flower-printed attire and posing around member Mujin, who will reportedly be the focus of this album. According to the group’s label, the outfit is the attire of the group’s fictional “Flower Kingdom” and is part of their “Asian Fantasy” concept.

Netizens, however, reacted negatively to the photo due to the fact that the outfit the members are wearing allegedly resembles the kimono, a garb worn traditionally in Japan.

Netizens criticized the concept expressing that they were uncomfortable with the fact that the K-Pop idols were borrowing concepts from Japanese history.
